The blackberry salad stitch has a similar look as the popcorn stitch but it is made using a series of double crochet 5 together which for me, works up more quickly than the traditional popcorn stitch.

Materials and Supplies

Any weight yarn with the appropriate size crochet hook. Our sample was made using worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook.

ch = chain
dc = double crochet
dc5tog = double 5 together
rep = repeat
sc = single crochet
sk = skip
st(s) = stitch (es)
tch = turning chain
yo = yarn over

Craft Instructions

Multiple of 4 sts +1 (add 2 for base chain)

Special Abbreviation dc5tog = double crochet 5 together - To make a dc5tog, work 5 dc in next stitch but leave last loop of each dc on hook, (6 loops on hook), yo and through all 6 loops
